First sighting of the Hooded Orioles

I saw the first Hooded Oriole (male) this weekend, and he's about two weeks later than normal. Of course, everything seems to be later this year.

Cute baby Mourning doves

Ahhh, cute little baby Mourning doves outside my office window. Somehow the doves always find a way to build a nest.

Beatrice waiting for her dinner

I always put Beatrice's plate down next to the window. She is so adorable...she's patiently waiting on her dinner!

Patio plantings

The back wall concrete has been repaired and barrel cactus planted. It looks MUCH  better.

Angelita daisies outshine Parry's Penstemon

More Angelita daisies (yellow) than Parry's Penstemon (pink) this year. Still very pretty. I just let the desert grow what it wants.

Beatrice waiting to be served.

I think this is adorable...in the evening I give the fur balls wet food and Beatrice's plate is always placed next to the window. She's waiting to be served.

Moth in mid-town

This beautiful moth has been hanging around the office for a few weeks. I found it in the walkway today so I relocated it to a safer place...but not before it almost became a lizard snack! Another chapter of Wild Kingdom in mid-town Tucson!

Good day for the day

This Costas hummingbird smacked into the window and rang his bell pretty hard. I held him for 20 minutes while he burrowed into my hand  and dozed until he was ready to fly off again. My good deed for the day.
